After 4 months of onboarding, Billings was finally approved by the Kauffman foundation to become an official One Million Cups chapter. The onboarding journey included building up a group of volunteer organizers, several trips to visit other One Million Cups chapters in the U.S., and extensive outreach to the Billings community to determine if Billings can sustain the program long term.
One Million Cups is a weekly event that brings together entrepreneurs and the Billings community over coffee and conversation. Entrepreneurs present business ideas to the local community and learn how those around them can support their business in it’s growth.
